Tough, yes. And it may be that it was only the "ordinary" players--guys who hit .250 and were used as utility guys most of their careers who are the real heroes of the game.

What angers me is that baseball is inherently a game of FAILURE. You're not SUPPOSED to succeed most of the time...that's part of what makes it so unique and beautiful. Think about it: If you have a .300 career lifetime batting average there's a good chance there's a spot waiting for you in the HOF. That means out of the ten times you come to the plate, on average, you FAIL to get a hit 70% of the time! What other sport--what other area of life for that matter--is so forgiving and ready to reward such futility?

And yet that's still not good enough for guys like Bonds and ARoid.

WT would do a lot better with the chicks if he'd quit inviting them over to his pad to listen to 26-minute versions of "Viola Lee Blues" from 1968 as music to get them "in the mood."

p.s. We love you Tell...we just think you have a problem ;-)

Yeah, well I suppose you and Grendel are gonna tell me you use Donna's best PITB effort to get them outta the house? Hmmm, not a bad idea. Unless she thinks that sound is the wife coming in the room...

i think "Donna's Best" partially contributed to the death of my dear cat.

the next cat will most assuredly have the comfort of living in a "Donna-Free-Zone"
